“Bad books on writing tell you to "WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW", a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.”
Joe Haldeman

“The 1143-year-long war hand begun on false pretenses and only because the two races were unable to communicate.

Once they could talk, the first question was 'Why did you start this thing?' and the answer was 'Me?”
Joe Haldeman, The Forever War

“Reality becomes illusory and observer-oriented when you study general relativity. Or Buddhism. Or get drafted.”
Joe Haldeman, The Forever War
